Blink-182 fans have been anticipating the band's new single, "Up All Night,"for a long time. Fake leaks of the song date back to at least 2007. When Blink bassist and singer Mark Hoppus told MTV News two years ago they wouldn't be playing the song on their reunion tour, the occasional rumor that they had played it a show incited long debates.

Well, the wait is almost over. The real "Up All Night" by Blink-182 will premiere Friday, July 15, on KROQ-FM radio in Los Angeles, and at blink182.com. Fans on the west coast may have to stay up all night (or at least get up early) for a listen - the debut happens at 8:30 a.m. PST.
Hoppus told MTV, "'Up All Night' contains elements of everything we've done in Blink-182, and pushes further than we've gone before. Can't wait for everyone to check it out."
Maybe Phoenix fans will finally get to check it out live when the Blink-182 plays the Tempe Beach park Amphitheatre with Matt & Kim on Friday, September 30.
